Contaminated Water Diving Operations

This course is designed to introduce the public safety diver to the issues, concerns and strategies necessary to plan for and operate in waters that may contain harmful materials. It is important to note that this course is intended for general practitioners in the public safety realm, not those who operate in Haz-Mat diving or more tenacious settings.

Participants will receive instruction on researching dive sites, recognizing potential hazards, planning and implementation strategies, decontamination and post dive record keeping. In addition, participants will receive instruction in the use of specialized equipment and alternative strategies.

This course is designed to assist the student, who may or may not have any prior knowledge or experience in conducting contaminated water diving, in understanding the core concepts and techniques needed to successfully perform the intended operation.

To successfully obtain the Operations level certification, students must demonstrate proficiency in all skills covered within this course. In addition, they must demonstrate appropriate safety behavior while in class, during practical exercises and around equipment being used in this course.

It is the intent of this manual to make divers, team leaders and supervisory staff aware of the potential hazards not readily visible in the dive environment and how to manage those complications in an effective and proficient manner.
